The Hardest Button To Button

My faaaaaavourite thing to look for in clothing when I’m browsing, shopping, or making are the little details! They are the things that make items unique – some piping that adds some crispness, a contrasting fabric trim, some complimentary bias binding framing a neckline and fabulous eye catching buttons!

Since returning from Europe I’ve spent two weekends in Sydney and there’s a button shop on King Street in Newtown that I’ve walked past numerous times but never entered so I finally got past the front door this month.

The store is called All Buttons Great And Small. It’s a small store, but buttons are small too and they have PLENTY to choose from in every colour, shape, material and pattern imaginable. Check these out:

I ended up settling on a small pack of these. After coming back from Paris my immediate thoughts were NAPOLEON! I love them. I’m sure they’re going to inspire a great piece. I’m thinking perhaps a cute black winter cape jacket with lapels?

I hear there are some similar stores right here in Melbourne so I will have to scope them out sometime soon. Recommendations welcome!!

DROOOOOOOOOOOOOL!

I haven’t been, but my sister has been to Buttonmania and had buttons specially-made there, I think they have ready-made buttons too. They are in the Nicholas Building on Swanston St!
